    Sad; but, true.

    Each day brings fresh evidence of those who seem to have never learned that "Form follows Function," of those who are so thoroughly enamored of "cool," "now," "happening," etc., that they've no care for how well anything actually works.

    If your services are locally based, do you append a geographic identifier into your keywords? Such as "cattle herders montana"?

    Thanks!

    That depends on whether or not there's evidence of users doing so.

    In the absence of such, one must rely of the content of the ad itself to distinguish itself with respect to geographic scope.

    Actually, it's rather easy to do here as well; larger doesn't necessarily mean smarter.

    I think Google truncates at 66th character or there abouts. I know of a test where it is indicated 10 words are weighted... rest if the qwords may as well be in the doc. Haven't tested it lately so it may have changed... though I doubt it.

    I've always thought it was 70?

    Isn't that self evident?

    How do you get users to search for words of your choice?
